  3. Hi all! Here is my latest completed project, the Hasegawa F-14A Tomcat in NSAWC "Flanker" adversary scheme, NAS Fallon 1999. As you know, this is the notorious Hasegawa Tomcat. This is my second one, and I learned quite a bit from my first try. I deviated from the directions in three key places: 1. Intake Assembly 2. Fuselage Join 3. Beaver Tail Attachment Basically what I did was to install the intake trunking BEFORE putting the inner ducting in. This allowed me to get a fantastic join of the intake trunking, which gave me fits last time. For the fuselage join, I cut out the rear bulkhead of the forward fuselage, and attached the completed forward fuselage to only the upper portion of the rear fusleage pancake. Also gave me a much better fit than last time. Third, attach the upper portion of the beaver tail to the upper portion of the fuselage pancake, and attach the lower beaver tail to the lower fuselage pancake. This was a HUGE improvement from the last time. The fit was almost perfect doing it this way. I used quite a mix of paints on this. Both grays are Gunze Aqueous, the light blue and white are Mr Paint, and the dark blue is Model Master. I am a bit disappointed as I used too light of a light blue, but I think it still looks pretty cool. Just a bit too light. :-) Decals are Fightertown Decals, and they are really fantastic. The fact that this aircraft is devoid of almost all stencils was a nice plus. LOL Other aftermarket additions are the Verlinden Cockpit Set, Steel Beach Naca Vent, and Master Pitot, and the Hasegawa Weapons Sets C and D for the probe and sidewinder. Anyway, I hope you like!

  4. SPITFIRE MK XII - SUSSEX, ENGLAND 1943 (AIRFIX 1/48) Spitfire MK XII - Airfix 1/48 For the first time in more than 25 years I've built an 1/48th scale model. This was a Kris-Kringle present and I decided to build it despite not being my preferred scale. So here we go! This new tooling Airfix kit is really very nicely done, excellent details and fine and crisp engraved panel lines. Also the fit is just perfect and I haven't use putty at all. The decals has two options and I decided to do one flown by South Australian RAAF Flight Lieutnant Donald Smith. Don Smith was the Squadron Leader and it was his personal aircraft.

  6. Hi everyone! I just complete my 23rd model, the 1/48 Revell Panavia Tornado IDS in Luftwaffe JaboG 31 markings from Afghanistan deployment at Mazer-e-Sharif in 2009. Let me just start by saying this is not an easy kit to build, particularly the wings and intakes. This ranks up there with the Hasegawa Tomcat as the most challenging builds I have encountered to far. In addition to the tricky wings and intakes, the instructions are really not good at all. Even worse, however, is the nonsensical parts numbering and part placement among the sprues. The parts are just spread all over, with a sprue containing parts in the 20s maybe and other in the 40s 50s 60s 70s up to the 100s. The sprues are all lettered, but the instructions never call out a letter, only the number. So much time is wasted hunting down parts by the number and appearance only. And since the numbers have no organization on the sprues, you literally hunt by appearance then check to see if it is the right number. Maddening! But with all of that said, it really does build into a nice model. The detail is quite good, despite the fact they added an extra panel line at the nose before the nosecone or something. It's just not quite right there. I am very happy with how this turned out despite some flaws and alignment issues that have only become apparent after looking at the pics. I used the Wingman Models Luftwaffe Tornados Part 1 sheet for this, and I must say they are quite awesome. No issues at all and they performed flawless. There was a little bit of an issue with the stencil diagram with incorrect numbering, but nothing that was not able to be figured out with some thought and deduction. I recommend this to anyone looking to do a German Tornado!

  7. F-23A Black Widow II, 1/48, HobbyBoss

    What`s up guys? :) Here is what i got yesterday - this wonderful HobbyBoss kit in 1/48. The YF-23 is a very cool plane, but i plan to make it even cooler - for instance how it should look like as a serial F-23A Black Widow II. Of cource, i don`t plan to start it any time sooner. Yet check out this monter kit - so nice boundaries and continuities and curves and shapes... beauty beauty!
  8. Hello, As the title states,I'm looking for the instrument panel and control stick from the Monogram/Revell 1/48 A-10 Warthog. If you've used a resin cockpit for yours and still have the parts and would be willing to let them go, I'd be more than happy to pay the shipping. Thank you! Justin

  14. Hello all, I have the Aires cockpit and the burner cans for the 1/48 Hasegawa F-18 kit. Does anybody of you have any experience, on how it fits the Kinetic kit? If these do not fit, I want to sell the with the Hasegawa kit. Thanks. Thomas
  15. Hi everyone! Back again to share my latest completed project, the 1/48 Hasegawa A-4M Skyhawk in Lo-Viz VMA-131 Diamondbacks markings from 1993. had the bright idea to add the Aires cockpit... what a mistake that was! I had only a couple of months ago used my first Aires pit (on a Tamiya F-16C Aggressor), and while it did take some work to fit, was not too much of a hassle. This one was nothing but a hassle. It took me more than an entire week to just get it to sorta fit in there. I had to hack up the plastic sides, the nose gear well, and the pit itself to shoehorn it in. Considering it usually take me just over three weeks to build an entire kit, a week fitting a cockpit alone is a huge time sink for me. So if you are considering the Aires cockpit for the Hasegawa A-4, DON'T. You have been warned! LOL I will not buy another Aires pit, however I will still use the ones I currently already have. The issue with the cockpit really took the wind out of my sails, and I must admit I rushed the construction a bit. So the seams and steps are not all perfectly attended to. All pics I have seen of this exact bird show it to be rather dirty and worn, so I tired to replicate that. I am happy with how the weathering turned out, despite the fact it is rather heavy.

  16. 1/48 ICM MiG-25RBT Foxbat-B Iraqi Air Force

    Hi everyone! Back once again to share my latest creation, the ICM MiG-25RBT. This kit is really quite nice, the moldings and details are very crisp. The fitment is quite good unless... well you do what I did and not spend enough time assembling the bulkhead support and intake section. This caused a chain reaction of fit issues in the rear fueslage. I am 99% sure that these issues I encountered were my fault. So if you build this kit, please take your time in that part of the construction process. I used the Cold War Studios corrected nose section, which is quite nice. The masks and IP acetate were also very helpful. Also used the Master Pitot set (which is really awesome!) and Neomega KM-1 seat. Decals for the Iraqi Air Force were OOB. My goal was to make this beast very worn and tired looking. So I weathered it quite heavily, so much so I was concerned I had overdone it. But the more I look at the pics the less concerned I am that I did. So I am happy with the finish. Kit: 1/48 ICM MiG-25RBT Foxbat-B Decals: OOB Aftermarket: Cold War Studios nose section correction, Master Pitot and AOA, and Neomega KM-1 Seat Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), MrPaint Traffic Gray (For MiG-31 and MiG-25), and Russian Wheel Green, Gunze Aqueous FS 36118 Gunship Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Blue, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Aluminum, Gold Titanium, and Burnt Iron.

  18. 1:48 F-16 Pylons

    Hi all, I'm in the process of starting a 1:48 Hasegawa F-16D that I picked up last weekend; I'm wanting to build a jet that I've seen in person, namely F-16D Block 30B 85-1572 (ironically the subject of the kit boxart and decals, just "a few" years before I saw it). I'm still in the process of doing research, but one thing that showed up right away that I'll need to address is the pylons on the wings. The kit comes with the original style pylons, but when I saw it, they had been replaced by LAU-129s on the wingtips and outer pylons, and the center pylons included in the kit don't look much like what was mounted. I'd like to build the jet as I saw it (i.e. without any ordnance), so the pylons will definitely need an upgrade. The jet in question: USAF F-16D 85-1572 by Josh Kaiser, on Flickr USAF F-16D 85-1572 by Josh Kaiser, on Flickr Some googling has shown that Voyager makes a replacement set, but images are hard to find, so I can't tell if the rails are actually represented, or they're just flat, and expected to be covered by missiles. One other option I've found is Eduard's Brassin IRIS-T, which includes two LAU-129s and two RB99 rails (which look very similar - could they be used as a substitute?) That would in theory cover the four LAU-129s I need, but I'd still need a source for the center pylons. So I guess my question is: does anyone make a decent set of F-16 pylons that could be displayed "clean" without too much work? For the markings, I'm planning on cobbling together some bits from Jake Melampy's Test Vipers sheet, and eventually using that same sheet to build 85-1551, which came in at the same time (both were out doing refueling testing with the KC-46A last summer)

  21. Eduard Hellcat 1/48

    If I had to build only one kit for the rest of my life it would probably be the Eduard Hellcat. This is my third or fourth but I will keep building them. I have not built a night attack version however so I decided that was the way to go. I bought the weekend edition and then robbed a few parts from other boxings in the stash. I also got some metal gun barrels and a resin drop tank from Quickboost. But I wanted to use the occasion to try some new weathering techniques. I used a black base with Stynylrez which I have to say is one of the single best things you can ever use on a model kit. It makes your surface smooth and fills on minor blemishes. Next I hit areas where I wanted to chip with some Alclad II aircraft aluminum Then I tried some liquid mask and then sprayed some yellow chromate from Mig Productions I found that the liquid mask does not always come off and getting it to come off can damage the surrounding paint in a way that you don't want. The liquid mask also covered up areas that I thought were too large. So with future Hellcats I might go with chipping solution only. I sprayed some chipping solution over the yellow and then hit it with the base coat and then I faded the top of the aircraft. Then I used some steel wool to scratch and remove the liquid mask. Again, not all of the liquid mask came up. I am still doing some minor repairs and I would like to use a finer steel wool in the future but the effect was pretty good I thought. Along the leading edges of the wings I dabbed some silver paint to better replicate the fine chipping often seen on this area of the F6F. I wish I could have achieved the effect through the liquid mask or chipping solution but in the end I think that it looks 'good enough' to move on. I did take off some paint on the engine cowling so I need to repaint part of that and then weather it back in. I will also be working on the prop, drop tank, wheels and canopy as well. There are some issues that I am having and areas where it is not perfect but I think it is a step in the right direction. I am learning a lot and that is always a good thing.

  23. 1/48 Tamiya F-16C "Blizzard" Aggressor

    Hi all! I am back once again with my latest completed project, the 1/48 Tamiya F-16C "Blizzard" Aggressor. This is my first time building the 1/48 Tamiya F-16, and it is indeed very nice as, although not quite on the level of their new F-14A, but close. This is built from the Aggressor boxing and is a Block 32 Viper. I used some aftermarket on this one, including my first full resin cockpit (Aires). I was a bit worried about making it fit, as I have heard horror stories about Aires pits and fitting them. But this must have been one of their better efforts as it was not as bad as I was expecting. I also used Steel Beach masks for the camo, and I definitely recommend them, as I would never have attempted this scheme without them. Even so, it was a bit tricky to apply, based on the complex shape of the F-16 (especially around the intakes) and the somewhat rigid vinyl (not as pliable as masking tape). But I had no problems at all with them pulling any paint up, which was good. I used Afterburner Decals "64th Aggressors" sheet for this, which I luckily found for sale at the IPMS Cleveland Model Show for $10 this past November. These were great, and I used them over the TwoBobs sheet I had as the decal print was clearer and nicer. To round out the aftermarket used, I added the Master Pitot and AOAs. The static dissipators are actually made from toothbrush bristles, a tip which I found here in these forums. I wish I could remember who it was so I could give them credit. I did make a couple of errors that I did not fix, the most glaring is the fact I added the chin pods per the Tamiya instructions for a block 32 Aggressor, however my reference shows that they were not used on the Blizzard Viper. By the time I realized my error, I had already painted and weathered the model. With the complicated camo scheme, I decided to leave it as is instead of ripping them off and trying to fix the paint. This was also my first time using MrPaint. This stuff sprays like an absolute dream. A bit stinky though. I will probably start using this more and more, even though I really have no issues with Gunze Aqueous (except their Insignia White, which I have lots of problems with LOL) or Tamiya. Here is what I used on this build: Kit: 1/48 Tamiya F-16C "Aggressors" boxing Decals: Afterburner "64th Aggressors" Aftermarket: Aires F-16C Aggressor Cockpit set, Master Pitot and AOA, Steel Beach "Blizzard" mask set Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), ModelMaster FS35109 International Blue, MrPaint FS 36270 Neutral Gray, FS 36251 Agressor Gray, and FS 36628 White Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Aluminum, and Gold Titanium, Jet Exhaust. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Homemade black oil panel wash. Without further ado, here are the pics, hope you like!
